Yup, pulled them off Monday, then dropped the car off for the tint and the dent removal Tuesday Am.

While that work was getting done, I drove over to Supreme and did all the prep and paint work.

The Powder Pro and I have a plan...wheels calipers and a few other goodies.

I didn't try without the Bow Tie, I felt like it needed something in the middle.

So I run a GM Vechicle Inquiry System report on my car...

Vin ends in 12335, and on the option code sheet it's a R6P car. It's not worth anything more, but it's a pretty cool little find no?
